Another view of Sacre Coeur


Doesn't it look like Rome? And though, no, it's Paris. I took this shot from the beginning of Rue Laffitte and the church you can see first is called Notre Dame de Lorette and the one in the background is, as you may have recognized already, the Sacre Coeur (located on Montmartre).

Today, I would like you to welcome two new daily photo bloggers :
Berlin and Seoul. Two interesting cities that I look forward to discover through a daily photo!

  2. Eric, this really is one of my favorite views in Paris ! Sometimes I feel like I'd love to climb the hill from Notre Dame de Lorette to the Sacré Cœur, through rue des Martyrs, on my knees ! But I'm not sure that would be enough a pain for my deeds to be forgiven !!!
    My main client's offices (guess which one it is…) are just at the beginning of rue Laffitte… May be, there, is my penitence…

  4. Hi Eric, nice shot. I've been to Paris several times but only to the Sacre Coeur once when I was a child. Nice memory.

  6. Hi, Eric,

    Nice photo. On my first trip to Paris, we sat on the steps in front of Sacre Coeur and ate a lunch that we brought in our knapsacks. Then we had a nap on the grass! It doesn't get any better.

    ps Have you seen my Los Angeles photo blog recently? It would be nice to have a link on the "father" site.

  10. Good Shot! It gives us a different perspective of Sacre Coeur. I loved visiting Montemartre but like you said in your previous post very touristy. Still, it should be on your must visit list if you go to Paris.

  11. This could look like Rome or maybe Greece if Sacre Coeur wasn't so famous. Great perspective Eric.

  12. After all of the religious mystery books (ala DaVinci Code), I wonder who might be lurking in the shadows...

  13. Eric, it is amazing how fast the DailyPhoto websites are multiplying. You should be very proud.

    Mélissa, your comment encouraged me to learn some French. Now I know what "au mois d'aout" means.

  18. I think that Sacre Coeur is one of the most beautiful places in Paris both because of the church's architecture and because of the beauty of the neighbor hood, with it's old streets and hillside. This is a great photo because it shows it up on the hill.

  19. Eric, I found this site for your readers about the history of the church and a little about the mont itself.

  20. Beautifully textured photo. I especially like how the statue on the top of Notre Dame de Lorette is silhouetted against the vertical black archway of the architectural element between Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur. Or is it part of Notre Dame?
